Everyone has been enjoying this warm start to spring, even the flowers, plants, and trees. Tender plants and vegetation could get a little chill tonight. Conditions will be right for a widespread frost, even a freeze in some areas. A Freeze Warning has been issued for all of central and eastern Kentucky through Saturday morning. It was plenty cold enough last night, but the gusty wind was still a factor and prohibiting frost from forming. Tonight the wind will relax and the sky will clear a bit, allowing temperatures to bottom out near freezing with valley locations dropping as low as in the mid 20s.
Mid-April is typically when Lexington records the final freeze of the season. The temperatures are expected to cooler than normal into next week. There will be several more opportunities for a frost, freeze, maybe even a hard freeze during this time. So if your tulips, daffodils, or other tender plants are sprouting or blooming, be prepared to cover them up or bring them inside.
